Absolutely loved the boat cruise both times my husband and I went on it. The equipment (snorkeling gear) was included and nice and clean. We saw so many turtles - it was amazing! The amount of beautiful coral and fish blew us away. Pete is so friendly and his knowledge was fantastic and the chocolate cake at the end was delicious and just another bonus of choosing this company. Definitely highly recommend!

Islander Cruises glass bottom boat turtle and snorkeling tour is great value considering you get two hours on and in the water with many sightings of turtles, coral and fish plus two opportunities to snorkel, with all gear included. Finish the day off with coffee and cake and you can be well satisfied with your day out with friendly and knowledgeable Peter. Thanks Peter for the Norfolk Island reminiscences too.

Our family took the two hour snorkelling tour on the glass bottom boat. Four of us snorkelled and two of us stayed on the boat. While others were snorkelling our "driver" gave us a great tour of blue coral, turtles and lots of information about all of this. Glad I didn't decide to snorkel on this trip. He did a great job of pointing out possible turtle sighting sites for those snorkelling. And, as mentioned in another review, the chocolate cake was AMAZING!

Pete's courtesy,knowledge,boat handling skill,and a great boat with easy access and good weather protection,made our 2 trips with him a pleasure! We did the turtle tour first and saw 5 turtles,then snorkeling around the beautiful lagoon.He also gave us a heads up on where to see turtles off one of the beaches on our own. The cake was great too! A very professional operation!

A wonderful glass bottomed boat trip to see the turtles, not only resting but also swimming and coming up for air. An opportunity to snorkel to see the coral and fishes as well as time to walk to Mt Eliza and/or the Old Gulch. Peter is a most informative and helpful tour leader. A great way to see and learn so much about the life in the lagoon at LHI.
